As I said to one startup earlier today “your friends, fans and followers won’t turn on a dime to help you unless you bring them along on your journey.” An urgent need for an introduction to an investor, contribution to a future crowd-funding campaign or post on social media to support a Valentine’s Da...

My Definition Of Success? | Success is the ability to do what you love to do on a daily basis. I used to think of success in terms of a title, a corner office and get-away home. Now, I think about of success in terms of choice, freedom and opportunity to choose.

Q: How do you find the companies in which you invest?
Christine Tsai, 500 Startups: This goes back to the need to have a wide network. The advantage of having a vast network is that referrals are a huge source of deal flow for us.

Introduction
“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship” – Forbes“25 Smartest Women On Twitter” – Fast Company“100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter” – Business Insider

Kelly Hoey is a speaker, strategist, startup advisor and board member. A connection-maker, networking strategist and expert community builder, Kelly is known for her leadership in building valuable professional networks, understanding the dynamics of engaged communities and the “how” of raising visibility, online and off. 

In 2011, Kelly co-founded Women Innovate Mobile, LLC (WIM), the first startup accelerator focused exclusively on fast-tracking the growth of early-stage mobile technology ventures with gender-diverse founding teams. Kelly continues to invest in as well as advise emerging technology companies.

As managing director of WIM, Kelly was responsible for building the accelerator’s global influencer network of partnerships and connections (over 100,000 online connections, including 88,000 followers on Google+). She was also responsible for leading WIM’s marketing efforts including creating the Google+ Hangout on Air Series #womenwhotech and the “Meet The Innovators” speaker series launched with Apple, Inc. in 2013.

Prior to her entrepreneurial leap, Kelly was immersed in the legal world, initially as a corporate attorney, and ultimately in leadership positions at global law firm White & Case, playing a key role in the development of the firm’s global alumni, professional development and women’s initiatives. In 2009, Kelly became the first president of the women’s business networking group 85 Broads and worked directly with 85 Broads’ CEO/Founder on strategies to re-engage the membership base.
